Spotlight on Satri House in Luang Prabang

SatriHouse-01

Satri House recently underwent an extensive facelift. Although the upgrade is not completely finished we thought it appropriate to put the spotlight on this lovely accommodation in Luang Prabang in northern Laos.

This really is your chance to live like a king, or at least a prince.

Satri House was built as the residence of Prince Souphanouvong in 1899.

Prince Souphanouvong, also known as the “Red Prince” became the first president of Laos after the communist takeover in 1975.

The Satri House was refurbished in 2002 by Ms Lamphoune Voravongsa and run thereafter as a hotel.

In 2008 construction started on an extension of the hotel which has been recently completed. Satri House now has a total of 29 rooms comprising four twins, 15 deluxe rooms, seven junior suites and three Satri House suites. All colonial style rooms are beautifully decorated with Buddha statues, traditional artefacts, oriental furniture, and black & white photography of Lao ethnic minorities.

Satri House is now among the more exclusive and exquisite places to stay while in Luang Prabang, which is a picturesque UNESCO World Heritage site, known for its ancient temples, French colonial and Lao fusion architecture and a laid back Laotian ambience.

The property offers two outdoor swimming pools, a restaurant, a garden bar situated in a lush courtyard, a library and a spa (the library and the spa will open in October 2010).

The rejuvenated Satri House is a fine four-star boutique style addition to Luang Prabang’s ever-growing hotel scene.
